A Temporary Occupation Permit has been issued to Selatar Airport’s new passenger terminal. The preparations for the terminal has also been consistently on track. As such, the operations of this terminal will be up and running by the end of this year.

 

What we can look out for from this new terminal are the following:

 

New larger terminal with increased capacity

The new terminal building has a floor area of 10,000 sqm – more than six times larger than the current terminal. Constructed and fitted out at a cost of about S$80 million, it is designed to handle 700,000 passenger movements a year, in anticipation of the growth in passenger traffic in the coming years.

 

Managed by Changi Airport Group, the new passenger terminal features an enlarged departure and arrival area, which is designed to handle scheduled commercial flights. The departure area will have four check-in counters, six immigration lanes, two security screening stations and a spacious gate holdroom, which can comfortably accommodate about 200 passengers.

 

The check-in, immigration and security screening counters are positioned in an intuitive straight route through the departure hall, enabling a quick and stress-free boarding process for passengers. The terminal’s interiors are designed to create a relaxed and comfortable feeling for passengers. The new terminal will also have a section for passengers travelling on chartered business flights and private jets, with its own waiting lounge area.
